A wonderful dinner. Great service, great food. They have mastered the feel of the great big city restaurant.... the servers were not interrupting, but were available, the courses arrived in a casually timely manner, and, the music was in the background which allowed wonderful dinner conversation at each table without bleeding over into other tables.

I have ordered the steak palermo many times; however at this visit, my steak palermo was sitting in a 1/2 an inch of olive oil, which made it almost impossible to consume. I had to move the steak to another plate. Not sure what happened, but this is not the typical experience I have had with The Little Village. The steak palermo is not cheap, so getting something sub-par is not acceptable.

We’ve made several trips to Baton Rouge. But this was first to include a stop at the little village. We certainly regret not getting there sooner. Few blocks north of other restaurants downtown but well worth the steps to get the most amazing Italian food we’ve had in some time. Everything was fantastic from apps to desserts. Garlic bread is a must. Service was great as was bar. We will certainly be back.

Great spot. But need to go back to white table cloths on tables. It’s a premium restaurant. The vinyl table tops are cheesy.

The Little Village never disappoints. We got engaged there 12 Valentine’s Days ago and we had a great dinner for Valentine’s 2020! Village Bread, martinis, wine, short rib, and fish were all excellent!
